Rash - Middle of Chest

I have an itchy red/purple rash on my chest. (bottom part of my sternum) It itches really bad. I have tried calendula ointment but it has not worked.

The doctors say it is Sebhorric Dermatitis. I have never had any skin issues. The rash started in the early part of the year so it has been months.

At times it feels like taking a shower exacerbates the problem.

Age: 41
2 kids (17 and 12 years old)
I live in California
Brown Hair
Brown eyes
light brown skin
prefer cooler weather

In the past I have suffered with PCOS, but the symptoms seem to be lessening. Cycles are more consistent at 30-35 days. Though they do tire me out a lot. I have also been getting more headaches with my period.

Periods are clotty and painful. But better than before.

My emotions are pretty steady. I do tend to get angry at times, but not too bad. Usually this is in the morning. I love coffee - it makes me happy. But I can only drink decaf because otherwise I get too shaky.

I like to help people.

I tend to be a bit anxious and nervous. As well as hard on myself.

I work in HR. I like my job.
I have BA degree.

People usually like me. They usually make nice comments.

Lately i've been feeling a bit more out of sorts as I have notices more male pattern hair growth. It really makes me sad and concerned. I wish that this wouldn't be the case.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Have gone through your previous threads Sepia, Nux and Sulph i.e. the remedies you have taken earlier should also help for your rash. Did you see any effect earlier while you were taking these remedies.

I didn't have the rash when I tried taking those. I can try again. Can you please send me the dosages.

Rashes are commonly caused by allergies or inflammation to the skin.

I do have some allergies, but I try to stay away from my allergens. But I have never had this before.

I am allergic to buckwheat (badly), milk, black beans, kidney beans.

All symptoms of excess pitta (fire) in you dermatitis, being hard on yourself, anger etc.

Stop coffee and spicy food asap.

To cool down and heal take livercare from himalaya till you get better.

Google pitta dosha and pitta reduction diet and follow it.

Please take Sulphur 30 twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects over a week.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
